It might help us shake off the learned helplessness that seems to have been inbred into recent generations. A Nanny State that "takes care of us" is poison to self-reliance and creativity.
While Social Security is still around, those who paid into it should be allowed to take their money back. When the elite raid this "pension fund," as they might well do, then we merely pick ourselves up and create a new way of doing things. Simple.
Keep Social Security only for those who paid into it. Stop Social Security for newer generations. End the Federal Reserve. Stop personal income taxes and end the IRS. If America was fiscally sane, it wouldn't be spending so much money anyway. These wars of corporate greed are far too expensive, and we don't benefit from them.
